Recipe: Lemon Bars

These are lemony and delicious with a yummy shortbread crust.  They were a snap to make and everyone loved them.  Our daughter loves anything lemon so I've got a few things up my sleeve for her this week.  The next treat is still setting in the fridge and I'll post it tomorrow.

The recipe comes from one of my favourite sites Make It From Scratch.  There's so much to find and explore on this site as their contributing bloggers goal is to make everything from scratch.

from Make It From Scratch

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar

Mix together with a pastry blender until it resembles small crumbs. Press into a 9X9 pan. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes.

2 eggs, beaten
2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar

Mix together and pour over the baked crust. Bake for 25 minutes at 350F. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Note: if using a dark pan lower the heat and reduce the baking time.
